I decided it wasn’t really version 3.0. I frogged it back to the ribbing and decreased the number of white stitches to 20 from 30. Mr. Penguin is on a 10 stitch diet now, so he’s not so Fatty McFatster now. So I made it version 2.5… or maybe 2.75. The math seemed to work out fine. I was worried about the decreases. I added more shaping in 2.0. I just reversed which color it happened in for 2.75. It’s amazing what happens when I think about things BEFORE doing them.
And of course… a picture on the Glass head. Did you know that Pier 1 claims this is one of their best selling items ever? Or at least that’s what the girl in the store told me when I bought mine. And really who doesn’t want a glass head, I think it’s made of awesome.
The pattern has been sent to a few friends who are going to test knit it/read it for me. It makes sense in my head, and we all know that can be a scary place. I also tend to leave letters/numbers off because my brain has already anticipated the information even if it’s not there. So as soon as they ok it, I’ll convert it to a PDF and post it on Ravelry.
I believe I will be doing Christmas with the Leftwich’s on Monday – so there will be pictures of the penguin hat with it’s new owner next week.
